National signing day is Wednesday, but the February signing period is almost an afterthought nowadays.

Division I programs sign most of their recruits during the December signing period, and then the offseason focus gives way to acquiring transfers.

On this edition of "The Volunteer State," Blake Toppmeyer of the USA TODAY Network and the News Sentinel's Adam Sparks and John Adams consider the likeliest candidates from this batch of newcomers to make a quick impact.
